PreSonus has acquired the assets of Notion Music, an American developer of music-notation software located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Notion Music's products include the Notion 4.0 composition software, and Progression 2.0 guitar tab editing software, both of which are available on Mac/PC and iOS. "We will, of course, continue to develop and sell all of Notion Music's current products," said PreSonus CEO Jim Mack (Pictured, right, with Notion President Jim Boitnott, left, and PreSonus Chairman Kevin Couhig, centre). "Notion is a strategic part of our increased commitment to the education market. And, at the same time, there are powerful natural synergies between Notion and our Studio One DAW, so it's reasonable to expect that all PreSonus customers will see additional benefits from this acquisition in the future." Education market manager John Mylnczak notes, "Music educators, students, and composers rely heavily on notation software, and Notion is much easier to use than most such programs. Furthermore, iPads and other mobile products are increasingly favoured by students and teachers. So our ability to include Notion products for Mac, Windows, and iOS in our educational packages will be of great value to music teachers and students." "We already have demonstrated our iOS expertise with QMix-AI, SL Remote-AI, and SL Room Control,” added PreSonus executive VP of product management John Bastianelli. “With Notion 4 and Progression for iPad, we're clearly doubling down on our investment in mobile computing. We've also emphasised integrated solutions with all of our software, so it makes sense that we would incorporate Notion and Progression into new solutions for composers and educators." www.notionmusic.comwww.presonus.com
